Why a specific plan for motorbikes was drawn up l.jpg

Why a specific Plan for Motorbikes was drawn up?

  • It was (and still is) an important mode of transport and its usage is rising:

    • More than 4 million vehicles (14,5% of the total number of vehicles)

  • Contribution to the overall figures was (and still is) much higher than its relative importance:

    • 8% of vehicles involved in accidents

    • 25 of each 100 victims

    • 1 of each 6 deaths in traffic accidents

  • It was (and is not any more) the only way of transport whose number of deaths and severely wounded was rising


Methodological approach 1 achieving a shared vision l.jpg

Methodological approach: 1) Achieving a Shared Vision

  • DGT sets-up and leads a working group devoted to draw-up and implement a Road Safety Plan for Motorcycles and Mopeds.

  • The Plan bases on the Shared Vision of its 12 stakeholders.

  • The joint work comprised obtaining:

    • A common understanding of the problem

    • A clear definition of priorities and

    • A consensus with respect to the solutions

  • It is worth noticing that not every working group member agreed with all the countermeasures proposed by the plan: consensus does not mean full-agreement!


Methodological approach 2 developing a long list of countermeasures l.jpg

Methodological approach: 2) Developing a long list of countermeasures

  • The solution tree was structured into 4 areas:

    • Preparing motor bikers for safe driving

    • Minimization of high-siniestrality scenarios

    • Avoiding risky practices

    • Adopting alleviating measures

  • These 4 fields of action are in turn subdivided into12 programs that frame the 36 measures proposed in the Plan.

  • The measures must be "filled-in" with specific actions. The plan provides with 24 actions to be implemented during the first year.

Objectives

The 4-year duration Plan set two objectives and was launched in January 2008, thus it has now been running for almost two years.

  • Objective 1: to reverse the upward trend in the total number (fatalities + severely injured) bikers (motorcyclist + moped-drivers)

  • Objective 2: the relative number of death (only fatalities) motorcyclist (only motorcyclist) starts a sustained-along-time downward trend

The plan follow up system l.jpg

The Plan follow-up system

  • The plan follow-up system consists of three elements:

    • Objective-related indicators: report on the degree of achievement of the plan's objectives

    • Statistic follow-up system: some 30 different tables and charts that are daily, monthly and yearly produced

    • Activity-related follow-up system: that monitors the implementation of actions by means of a small database and the solutions tree

The initial 24 urgent actions contained in the plan have been complemented by 31 additional actions


Selected recent actions l.jpg

Selected recent actions

  • Special multi-agent campaign for the enforcement and promotion of the use of helmet in Southern Spain

  • Major event on road-safety in Urban Areas

  • Mass-media communication campaign in 2008 and 2009

  • Guardrails replacement and protection

  • New Driving Law according to the new European Directive

  • Research plan on P2W safety


Slide13 l.jpg

Special multi-agent campaign for the enforcement and promotion of the use of helmet in Southern Spain

Objectives:

Helmet use rate gets close to 100%.

No additional biker dies as a consequence of not wearing a helmet.

Key aspects:

  • Local and national traffic police officers lock the bikes of offenders until they come back wearing a helmet (no additional law drafting was required).

  • DGT as leading institution; from 15 May to 31 July 2009.

  • Users' and victims' associations active supporters.

  • Supported by mass-media communication campaign including the campaign kick-off by the Ministry of Interior

Major event on road safety in urban areas l.jpg

Major event on road-safety in Urban Areas

Objectives:

Identify and disseminate road safety best practice in urban areas.

Increase road safety awareness of local officials (more than 8.000 municipalities in Spain).

Key aspects:

  • Event sponsored by DGT's National Road Safety Observatory.

  • Very welcome by local authorities: number of attendees + technical contributions from municipalities.

  • One out of nine themes devoted to PTW.

  • A survey to identify priority measures for PTW in urban-areas was conducted and its results are now available.

15


Mass media communication campaign in 2008 and 2009 l.jpg

Mass-media communication campaign in 2008 and 2009

Objectives:

Inform the public opinion about an emerging social drama.

Every driver adapts its driving behaviour to the new situation.

Key aspects:

  • Themes: risk driving and need for bikers and drivers to sharing the road.

  • Multichannel: radio, press, Internet (www.dgt.es) and TV.

  • Slogan 1: “If we think in bikes, everything will go on wheels. Cars are not anymore alone, bikes are here to stay”.

  • Slogan 2: ” Last year 528 bikers died in traffic accidents. That is real, and you can change reality”.

16


Guardrails replacement and protection l.jpg

Guardrails replacement and protection

Objective:

Minimize the severity of bikers' injuries.

Key aspects:

  • Specific regulation for adapting guardrails since 2004.

  • Two complimentary actions:

    • Ministry of public works: plan to protect 1.600 Km.

    • DGT: €30 mill budget to co-finance the protection of guardrails in secondary roads.

  • A special several-month technical study has been undertaken to adapt the general regulation to those guardrails installed in secondary roads.

  • Terms of reference for public works tenders in these secondary roads already available.

Research plan on p2w safety l.jpg

Research plan on P2W safety

Key aspects:

  • Working group staffed by 21 members (usual members + research centres).

  • Four research areas identified and overall target scope for each of them agreed by the WG:

    • Study on bikers' profiles

    • Mobility and exposure to risk

    • In-depth studies of bikers' accidents

    • Methodology to evaluate countermeasures

  • The WG members are likely to take active part in the implementation of the agreed research.
